Subject: nassau is ok
being a long island fellow myself, it was very easy to get to. for the most part, the shows were ok. never the greatest but always enjoyable. almost got kicked by a horse.

Subject: Prejudicial review, but to hear it is to love it!
This was my first show, and I virtually had to be dragged by a buddy into going (I turned down tix from him for Radio City previously; in retrospect what was I thinking?). Anyway, I promised him I'd keep an open mind, and the rest as they say is history...

This is a wonderful show, and I'm thrilled to see a great quality SBD surface. THANK YOU CHARLIE MILLER!! Superb Jack Straw, and a very solid first set. Let It Grow is textbook perfect. And then they just take off for the second set: everything from Shakedown through a top Sugar Magnolia is played to the hilt. Ken Kesey joined the band onstage during space and U.S. Blues.

Another note: not sure if this was the official second coming of Phil's vocals, but a microphone was set up for him and he sang backup during U.S. Blues. The crowd went completely nuts, shouting "Phil's SINGING" throughout. I was clueless at the time, but it's worth mentioning...
